We are looking at ways to enhance our students’ registration experience.  There are 3 things we would like to do:


1)       When the student attempts to register for a class we would like them to have the ability to get information about the faculty member.  I envision the name of the faculty member teaching the course being listed and when the student clicks on his or her name they get a short bio.

2)      They are able to click on a link to see the syllabus for the class.

3)      They can see what textbooks are required and what the costs are for those textbooks allowing them to even make the purchase.


Ideally, we provide the student much of the pertinent information they need to make a decision at the time of registration.  If you are doing any of these things today, can you reply to me (offline) and provide me with your feedback? 


We are currently on Banner 9 and Luminis 4.
